I have been following the
Washington DC Bald Eagles,
"Mr. President" and "First Lady."
I thought it was time for a recap of the eaglets
and a post for
Washington DC Bald Eaglets
March 22-25, 2016
soon after hatching . . .
growing and changing
May 13, 2016
In 2014 a pair of mated Bald Eagles chose an idyllic site to build a nest
on the grounds of the United States National Capital, Washington DC.
They nestled high in a Tulip Poplar tree
amongst the Azalea's at the National Arboretum
which is operated by the United States Department of Agriculture.
This is the first Bald Eagle pair to nest in this location since 1947.
The two Eagles have been iconically named
"Mr. President and First Lady"
The First Lady laid her first egg of 2016 on February 10th
and laid her second egg on February 14th early in the morning.
DC2 hatched at 8:27 AM om March 18, 2016, EDT.
DC3 followed two days later, hatching March 20 at about 3:00 AM EDT.
More than 36,000 people voted in choosing names for the eaglets.
The winning patriotic names,
"Freedom and Liberty"
